The wines of Sociando Mallet are characterized by a very deep and dark color, complex aromas of little red fuirts and a well-integrated fine oaky touch. They are by tradition long-keeping wines. The wines are full-bodied,straight and elegant, with a lot of freshness and depth.

Wine AdvocateThis uncompromising property has turned out a backward, forbiddingly tannic wine that, even in this very opulent and flamboyant vintage, will need a minimum of 10-15 years of cellaring yet keep for 40 or more years. Opaque black/purple, with notes of crushed rock, white flowers, graphite, blueberry and cassis, the wine is tight and needs to be coaxed from the glass. It is medium to full-bodied, with an excruciatingly tough-textured finish. Everything is here, and the wine is set for a long life, but it is not the least bit charming and certainly won't be for at least another decade.

Wine SpectatorThis is trying hard, with obvious toasty spice joining sweet vanilla, blueberry and raspberry notes, all carried by more exuberant toast through the finish. Ambitious, but not quite polished and integrated. Drink now through 2016.

James Molesworth, 2012
